    This place is really nice and clean. Honestly one of the nicest hostels I've stayed at! Hammocks were great to chill on at the end of a long day outdoors :P

    O hostel possui um ótimo café da manhã. Os quartos possuem armários individuais grandes e com chave, além de banheiro dentro do quarto. A área comum é bem grande, com redes, mas não bar.

    Staff and hostel are amazing. Beds are comfy and the internet is the fastest I’ve experienced so far travelling through Brazil. Only problem I have is they charge you extra for early/late check in/out. And they don’t have soap in the bathroom, so you have to bring your own soap in the washroom after you’ve done your business. These shady practises keep me from giving it a better score. Overall it’s a good hostel in lençóis and they have a tour agency which is good too.

    The staff were great, really helpful. There weren't many people staying there at the time but we were out the hostel all day anyway. The breakfast is really good.

    I had a nice time in Hi Hostel in Lencóis during my travels. The hostel is spacy with hammocks and enough space outside as well as inside. The kitchen is lacking some equipment but it`s enough to prepare some smaller dishes. The staff is helpful and the rooms and all the facilities were clean. The highlight was definitely the amazing breakfast!

    The staff here are a bit weird and unfriendly, not very helpful. The hostel itself is really cute with hammocks and chairs and a garden, but there isn't much atmosphere, partly due to it being low season, but there is no music and the staff don't really make you want to hang out there. The tour guide operating from the hostel are great though!

    The hostel did not live up to its rating and potential. Rooms, Cleanliness and the Breakfast were great. The staff was not helpfull to useless, except for the breakfast crew. We asked for information on Lencois and trips in Chapada Diamantina and were only presented with a photo book of the associated travel agency. Hardly any information or recommendation was given. Guest kitchen did not even have spoons. The vibe was really weird and the many cats were annoying while eating in the common area.

    Their office system wasn't very organised, they tried to charge me for an extra night that I had already paid for. But the guy admitted his mistake and apologised. Wifi was very problematic, only worked half the time. Breakfast finishes at 9am. I turned up at 9.01 and the kitchenhand was very exasperated with me. I think as a host you owe it to your guests to make sure that paying guests are happy and well-fed, especially given that "time" is always such a relaxed concept elsewhere in Brasil.
